SPCA of SW Michigan: Stretch and Scratch Cat Scratchers Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The product was used for the benefit of cats that have to spend time in cages.

The scratchers were used in all of our cages so that the cats would have some to scratch and stretch on. This makes them feel more comfortable and happier in the cage environment. Being less stressed makes them healthier and faster to adopt.

How many pets did this grant help?

These scratchers have helped over 100 cats so far and more to come.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

The story of a cat would have to be Astro. He and other cats were taken from a family that was living in a van. Astro became depressed being in a cage waiting for a neuter appointment. The scratcher made him more comfortable and he was able to stretch his muscles.
